3.56/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a chalice. I think I can find a date code on the bottle, but I can't read it, so fat lot of good that does us.

Pours murky amber with a smallish head that just sort of sits there. Slow, fine carbonation. Smell is musty, dark fruits (such as the dates mentioned on the bottle), some clove and banana.

Taste is fruity. More of the dates, some cherry, some overripe cherry flavor (which I think is from the cascara, which I've tried in a tea format before), a little bit of alcohol bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel is thick without being all that sticky. Overall, this is a pretty good beer.

3.78/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Almost a mahogany hue with a big creamy and foamy head and okay lacing

S: Lots of fruits and candied sugars: cherries, dates, figs, brown sugar, raisins with some subtle coffee undertones; this smells quite good

T: Pretty boozy and not nearly the complexities as the aromas hinted at: dates, cherries, brown sugar, raisins, and coffee are all there but they just don't quite mesh

F: Medium body and sticky--pretty decent mouth feel

O: I like this beer; I just wish the flavors matched the amazing aromas

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Color - thick and cloudy unfiltered maple syrup.

Aroma- sweet nutty caramel.

Taste- Starts with a velvety dark cherry note mildly shifting to a buttery Belgian yeasty spiciness, finishing with a dark chocolate dry lingering beauty.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 5/4/13.
